First I watched the Cubs game and they won. Very important.
I watched 2 episodes of Boston Legal on DVD, borrowed from my parents. Another way I can help them, borrow their stuff. And as I established yesterday if is very very very important for me to continue to help my parents.
I wanted to watch another episode. Actually I wanted to just keep watching and watching. I considered doing that and then calling in sick to work today. Because if I did that, society would obviously consider me off balance and needing a day to recuperate my mental well being. But I didn't do that. Because I just don't do that kind of thing. Usually.
Once when I lived in California, I was driving to work one day and something in me snapped and I turned my car around and went to the beach.
No one at work commented on my sunburned face the next day. It was that kind of job. It was that time of my life. Yes, my 20's. And of course it was California.
So, today, in spite of getting not-quite-enough sleep I will go about my work day as if I've had a full 8 hours. Because it is that kind of job. I'm in my 50's. And, most important of all, I can take a nap later!
